A little something special for all our West Coast followers. This is one not to be missed. With the debut of the Fatboy Slim Las Vegas Take Over residency at Marquee, LV turning into a truly unique experience due to crazy weather causing a surprise change in venue, pushing the party inside the Marquee Nightclub, the ever intrepid Fatboy Slim is ready to bring the spirit of Brighton Beach back to the Strip again on July 3rd. Though the forecast remains unclear, what can be guaranteed is a set from a true master of the dancefloor. With exclusive re-edits of his iconic tracks (think “The Rockafeller Skank” meets The Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction”), a no-holds-barred musical approach that takes in everything from Latin Samba to big-room house, Fatboy Slim’s July Take Over will be where the fireworks really are on Independence Day Weekend.
Last month the Marquee Dayclub pool was decked out for the launch of Fatboy Slim’s Las Vegas Take Over, complete with a plexi-glass DJ booth built over the pool, FBS logo banners and even a giant FBS happy-face/skull logo balloon. But a freak windstorm had palm trees bent double, the pool’s waves crashing over the sides of the DJ booth, and people huddled together under beach towels for warmth. Undeterred, Fatboy Slim ordered the show indoors the Nightclub, where Aeroplane promptly turned up the heat, banishing any wind-chill factor from Marquee’s main room, packed full of beach dressed clubbers, who clearly didn’t let meteorological mayhem dampen their spirits. When Fatboy Slim took to the decks, the crowd erupted in a scene reminiscent of Moeyaert’s “Triumph of Bacchus”, clearly appreciating his fortitude to keep the party going despite weather issues.
